Vidnami is great, but not right for everyone.
- Only need to create video sales letters (VSLs)
- Want a larger library of stock videos
- Or don't want to pay a recurring fee
Then you're in the right place!
In this post I'll go over multiple alternatives to Vidnami that I've actually used.
So let's jump right into it!
P.S. - If pricing is the issue, you can get Vidnami for up to 50% off. Click here to see how.
EasyVSL 3.0 - Best for VSL Videos
If you only need to create VSL videos then it's a no brainer.
EasyVSL 3.0 is the answer.
However, be careful. You might think you only need VSL videos now, but want to expand your business later and then you'll be stuck with 2 different subscriptions.
However, there used to be a way to get the program without having to pay any monthly fees.
I can't guarantee that it still works, but you can click here to read the discount method and try it out.
If the above option works, then EasyVSL truly becomes a no-brainer.
Otherwise, I'd deep and hard about whether VSL videos are truly all you need.
You can read my EasyVSL review here if you want more info, but here's the quick rundown:
- VSL Videos only
- Media library only has some free images
- Runs on your desktop using Adobe Air
- Rectangular videos only
- $97+$9.99/mo, $197/year. $67 lifetime possible
- VSL videos, social media videos, & ads
- Media library with ~2,000,000 videos and images
- Runs in your browser
- Square & rectangle formats
- $35/month or $297/year if you get the discount
InVideo - Most Affordable Alternative
InVideo is the most affordable alternative, but it's not as hands off as CS.
That's because they don't have an advanced AI and allow for much more customization than CS.
This is great if you're looking to create different types of videos and value customization, but not ideal if you want to pump videos out very quickly.
They do have many templates which speed up the video-creation process, but it's still not as fast as CS.
However, if you're trying to save money, but still want to benefit from video, then InVideo is your best bet.
It's nearly 3x cheaper than Vidnami and you can use my my discount code to get it at 40% off.
- Vertical, horizontal, and square videos
- 1000s of templates
- Can customize and move all elements
- No automatic media selection or voiceover autosync
- $12/mo or $72/year for the Business plan.
- $36/mo or $108/year for the Unlimited plan
- Horizontal & square videos
- 100s of templates
- Limited customization
- Automatic media selection and voiceover autosync
- $35/month or $297/year if you get the discount
Lumen5 - Largest Media Library
Lumen5 is in between Vidnami and InVideo.
It has an AI that autoselects media from their massive library, but you can't add a voiceover and video customization is somewhat limited.
They're also a bit more expensive than Vidnami, but their media library is absolutely huge.
If you get their highest plan you get access to 160,000,000+ videos, which is absurdly high.
However, that kind of access doesn't come cheap and Lumen5 is one of the most expensive programs on this list.
It also has a maximum video length of 5 minutes, doesn't allow voiceovers, and is mostly made for social media videos.
Their $29/month plan also only allows 720P videos and has the same media library as CS, so I recommend buying it only if you're looking at their Premier or Business plans.
You can read my full Lumen5 review here, but here's the quick comparison:
- Square, rectangle, & vertical videos
- Social media videos only
- No voiceover
- 5 minute video length limit
- $29-$199/mo or $228-$1788/yr
- Square & rectangle videos
- Social media videos, VSLs, and more
- Voiceover & VO autosync
- Unlimited video length
- $35/mo or $297/year
Rocketium - Don't Recommend
I've also tried out Rocketium, but all I can say is: I don't recommend the program.
It's similar to InVideo, but much more expensive, and unfortunately has no game-changing features.
Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad program. Just... compared to the other options available the value for the money simple isn't there.
Programs I Haven't Tried
Now, there are some programs I haven't yet tried that seem like they might be reasonable alternatives to Vidnami.
That's why I'm including them here. But I want to include a big disclaimer: I have not used the programs below! My assumptions are based on their sales pages.
If you'd like me to actually review some of the programs below, please leave a comment below.
Veed.IO look almost exactly like Vidnami's Influencer templates with some additional features.
They also auto-create the subtitles, autosync the video to the text, and they even add a video progress bar to the bottom of the video.
They're a bit cheaper than CS, but keep in mind that their main focus seems to be Influencer-type videos. You can't create VSLs with them.
Promo.com seems like a combination of Lumen5's media library and InVideos' editing features.
More expensive than either program. Especially if you want to use the media clips from their Premium media library.
Biteable uses the Storyblocks library which is the same as what Vidnami uses.
They look similar to Lumen5 & InVideo, but looking at the price and value for money it doesn't look like the best option to me.
